Call for Submissions: 'Calm Down, Dear' Festival 2020 (Expired)


In May 2020, Camden People’s Theatre stages its seventh ‘Calm Down, Dear’ festival of feminism. This unique three-week celebration of innovative feminist performance – featuring some of the UK’s most exciting artists – is a highlight of the independent theatre calendar. Past CDD hits include Louise Orwin’s Pretty Ugly (2013), Sh!t Theatre’s Women’s Hour (2014), Snuffbox Theatre’s Blush (2016), and Racheal Ofori’s So Many Reasons (2018).

This year’s ‘Calm Down, Dear’ festival will include a strand in partnership with UCL Culture’s Performance Lab. As part of this, work will be presented in the Bloomsbury Theatre and Studio, and links will be drawn across the CDD programme with world-class research taking place at UCL.

What we’re looking for:

  • New work
  • Devised, self-made and solo work
  • Formally and/or politically radical work
  • Work that engages new audiences
  • and work for our UCL Culture strand (see the application form for more details)

Calm Down, Dear’ 2020 takes place from May 11 – 30, 2020. If you would like to submit an application, please read the call-out information document and apply via the google form which can be found inside.
